63. Stricken by a debilitating disease in childhood and housebound during an extended recovery period, I turned to the study of magic as a way to compensate for physical shortcomings.

38. I wanted to become a cavalier, but am allergic to horses.

39. Couldn't pass the physical to become a fighter.

40. Wanted to be a ranger, but I have hayfever. Also, bugs: Ick!

We had this come up in my campaign, which is not Golarion-based.

I determined that elven infancy is very short, a 1 year old elf is equivalent to a 3 year old human. So they're out of the icky stage very quickly.

From there, development slows. Puberty begins around 30 (elves aren't sure about this - everyone is different, and they've stopped counting by now anyway) and lasts for around 30 years.

All the upheaval caused in humans by rapid growth in adolescence is stretched out over a much longer period of time. This allows a more sedate emotional and physical development, and is less traumatic to the elven 'teen'.

From there, they enter what would be analogous to human 'college years', the late teen, early adult years where they start to really become part of the community. This lasts until they get the urge to cast aside the folly of youth and become PCs...

It's a rough guide, and there's a lot of leeway with which a GM can play, but that's how it works for my campaign.

Another one from the vaults:

'Rock and Rule'

I still watch this and 'Wizards'.

Wizards - not a Saturday morning cartoon, but an all time favourite of mine.

I saw Laibach credited in the trailer.

"Man is like a candle. He must radiate light by burning himself." -Ankar Moor, Deathsport

This line was spoken by Richard Lynch, a man who had, during an LSD trip gone bad, set himself on fire. I always wondered if the line was written intentionally, with that in mind, or if it was one of those bizarre accidents.

Spider Goblins are listed in the 3.0 edition 'Creature Collection', a 3rd party product by Sword and Sorcery Studios.

Checking the book, I realized its 'Spider-eye Goblin'. My apologies for the error.

'Kolchak - the Night Stalker' featured an intriguing, alien creature.

No name was given; it was invisible, consumed bone marrow (which it regurgitated later), had incredible strength, and at one point in the episode, made two tons of lead ingots disappear.

Not sure how that would translate to Pathfinder, but I found it interesting.

I would like to see Bugbear, Morlock, Wyvaran, Gnoll, Centaur, Hobgoblin, Ogrekin, Ratfolk, and Strix, please.

Edit: and Spider Goblins, if possible.

A Kingmaker style campaign set in the Darklands would be highly cool.

Ludovico Technique - 'We Came To Wreck Everything' CD

I started playing in 1978. During the Satanic Panic of the 80s-90s, I only ran into one person who bought into the 'D&D causes suicide, drug use, ingrown toenails, International Communism, etc.'

Funny, in 2006 I started a new job, and when he learned of my interest in role-playing games, I had a supervisor ask if I worshipped the devil. I told him I had been doing that before I got into gaming.

132. Because my ex-wife sucked the life out of me in the divorce.


"Men of Harlech stop your dreaming
Can't you see their spear points gleaming
See their warrior's pennants streaming
To this battle field"

B: Hang on. Hang on! It's all coming back. I've-I've been stuck here for over twenty years, ever since you were last here on the moon. You abandoned me here! You swine! You toddled off with that old queen of tarts and left me to rot in that parrot cage, didn't you? And now you come back here, just because it suits you, after wasting half my life and expect me to follow you to the ends of the earth!
B M: Yes.
B: All right.

Highlander, Ramirez sings/says this while MacLeod balances on the rowboat.

"Indian Bob, kill the hun!"

'Poxy whoreson' should be fairly universal.

I'm also partial to using 'Baphomet's bullocks!'

3.) A human patron of the establishment singles out a non-human, declaring, "Your kind isn't welcome here."

4.) A group of clever scoundrels starts a staged fight between two of their number. While all eyes are on the combatants, the others proceed to steal food and drink from the bar and its customers.

Here are some quotes from one of my favorite movies...

"The last time that I trusted a dame was in Paris in 1940. She said she was going out to get a bottle of wine. Two hours later, the Germans marched into France."


S: "I've got an idea! I don't know if it will work but I've got to try. Turn around!"

T: "I've turned, S**."

S: "Whatever you do, don't turn around until I say so."

T: [turns around]" But S**..."


T: "Yes, S**."

S: "Good! Cause... I think... I'm gonna cry."

Note these quotes are from the same movie.

~sigh~ no one even tried my last quote... must be no one here likes romantic comedies.

Don't feel bad. I posted two quotes early in the thread, and as far as I know, all I got was a couple 'no idea' responses.

If it's not too late to join in on this, I would very much like a copy as well.

Thank you in advance.

"Man is like a candle. He must radiate life by burning himself."

-Line spoken by Richard Lynch, who once set himself on fire.

I will forever wonder if that was done intentionally as a joke, or if it was meant to be ironic.

"We'll fire together, one at a time."

An arctic research station is indulging in questionable experiments when something goes wrong. Investigators arrive to assist, and are trying to figure out what's going on.

I laughed out loud at their collection of garden gnomes.

Best use for monkeys, EVER!

Sad to say, I missed out on this totally. Guess I'll polish up my ideas and wait for the next time.

I'd like to see the Kingmaker framework expanded to allow things like underground tunnel settlements and even the stereotypical elven tree city.

Paizo set the rules up in a basic fashion, so you could build a regular fantasy town and kingdom. That's a great start, how about some variety to the mix now?

'Soylent Green' is begging to be remade. It is surprisingly topical: overpopulation, environmental disaster, food shortages, care of the elderly...
